"Honestly, the hardest one to guard was in practice. №24. Kobe Bryant. There was nothing like trying to guard him on that wing when you were iso-ed.
You were literally helpless. He was such an asshole. He’d tell you about too. He wasn’t just going; he treated practice as games.
It was no different to him. If you’re competing on the court, he was trying to kill you and he was telling you about it.
As a man, it’s tough to hear someone tell you about how they’re going to kill you and then [watch them] kill you."
